MIAMI -- Dwyane Wades right arm had a nasty gash that left him unwilling to shoot the ball for Miami down the stretch. Omer Asik needed stitches around his chin, not to mention a Chicago jersey that wasnt covered in his own blood. That was Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. And in Game 3 (Sunday on TSN at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt), both sides expect more of the same. "We havent been able to ease into anything this year," Heat forward LeBron James said. Dont look for that to change any time soon, either. With a 2-1 series lead at stake, the Bulls and Heat renew acquaintances Sunday in Miami, ending a roughly 94-hour hiatus in the already-physical matchup. When Game 2 ended Wednesday, just about everyone in the Heat locker-room had an ice pack strapped to something, and more than a few limped their way to the bus that would carry them to the airport. Just think: They were the winning side. "Fortunately, we were able to have some days to recuperate," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Our guys, theyre not shying away from it. Neither team is. Both teams have built these habits for the entire season. Weve proven were an aggressive, attacking, physical defence that rebounds the basketball. ... Theyve proven to be the same. So you have two things colliding into each other." The Bulls -- the NBAs top overall seed who no longer has home-court advantage in this series -- have shown they can recover quickly. After each of their three previous playoff losses, Chicago answered with a double-digit win in the next game. Plus, the Bulls havent lost consecutive games since February 5-7. "Dont jinx us like that," Bulls guard Derrick Rose said. Since 2006, when the Heat won their lone title, the winner of Game 3 of the East title series has advanced to the NBA finals every time. "This is going to be a crazy game, where I think theyre going to have a lot of confidence," said Rose, the NBAs MVP this season. "Some way, somehow, weve just got to come up with this win no matter how we get it. Weve just got to have more intensity than them and play way more aggressive." Can this series get any more aggressive? Wade seems to think it might. Scoring might be plentiful in the Oklahoma City-Dallas matchup out West, but the East likely will be won in gritty fashion. "This is a very physical series," Wade said. "This is a grind-out series. You look at our series compared to the other series, its night and day between the styles. Very physical and Im sure both teams in between games are in the ice tub, trying to get their body ready for the next one." The Bulls manhandled Miami on the boards on the way to a Game 1 rout, getting 31 second-chance points in the series opener. Miami cut that nearly in half for Game 2, holding Chicago to 18 second-chance points and outrebounding the Bulls 45-41. Miami was markedly better on defence as well. Chicago had four field goals in the final 13 minutes of Game 2, all of them by reserve Taj Gibson, and the Heat outscored the Bulls 14-10 in the fourth quarter, which Spoelstra and Miami pointed to afterward as a source of major pride. "We have to execute a lot better," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "We have to screen better. We have to keep the ball moving. But we have to get some easy baskets, too." In Game 2, that wasnt happening. The Bulls had 83 different quarters this season in which they scored 29 points. On Wednesday, thats what they managed in the entire second half. "Were all in it together," said James, who had nine big points in a late 11-2 run that snapped a 73-all tie and sealed the Game 2 win. "I made a few plays down the stretch. But if we didnt continue to get stops defensively and give ourselves an opportunity to get in that position, we wouldnt be 1-1 now." If anyone really enjoyed the long gap between Games 2 and 3, it was James. Hes played at least 40 minutes in nine of Miamis last 10 playoff games -- and the lone exception was a matchup where he was six seconds shy of that. James has averaged nearly 46 minutes of playing time in the last four Heat games, yet insists hes not wearing down whatsoever. "I never ask him if hes tired or if he can absorb that many minutes," Spoelstra said. "Hes a remarkably well-conditioned athlete. In many ways, hes a freak of nature." Really, the tone of this series should be no surprise. Chicago had the NBAs top field-goal percentage defence this season at .430. Miami was second at .434. "We want to come back there and bounce back and get back on the right page, because things can go bad quick," Bulls swingman Ronnie Brewer said. "You dont want to get into a habit that one game leads to two to three losses. So you usually try to turn it around as quickly as possible." Rose will look for a bounceback, after shooting only 7 of 23 in Game 2. Strange as it may sound, the bigger boost for Chicago may come if Kyle Korver -- off to a 2-for-10 start in the series -- gets his shot going again. The Bulls are 30-4 this season when Korver scores at least 10 points, 41-20 when he doesnt. "Im not going to get wide open in the series," Korver said. Hardly anybody is. Even with all the star power -- James, Wade, Rose, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer -- the teams are shooting a combined 43 per cent from the field, 31 per cent from three-point range. And both sides are convinced that Sunday night, a play here or there might be the difference. "It hasnt been a lot of yakking back and forth," Wade said. "Just a lot of hard work. Who knows if itll get there, but you always know its going to be hard work between these two teams." www.houstontexansjerseysonline.com/elite-greg-b-jones-texans-jersey/ . In the process, they provided the Jacksonville Jaguars with a harsh taste of reality. Joe Flacco completed 27 of 36 passes for 266 yards and two touchdowns before leaving early in the third quarter, and Baltimore cruised to a 48-17 victory Thursday night. www.houstontexansjerseysonline.com/elite-d-j-swearinger-texans-jersey/ . The 41-year-old Mosley, a former champion in three divisions, improved to 47-8-1, receiving winning scores of 115-113, 115-113 and 115-113. http://www.houstontexansjerseysonline.com/elite-garrett-graham-texans-jersey/. The former New York Giants star and unrestricted free agent visited the Indianapolis Colts team complex Thursday and was still negotiating with the team Friday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no deal had yet been reached. www.houstontexansjerseysonline.com/elite-j-j-watt-texans-jersey/ . These days, it seems every team is. Price outpitched Jon Lester in a matchup of left-handed aces and the Rays broke a tie with the Red Sox for the worst record in baseball with a 3-2 win on Tuesday night. www.houstontexansjerseysonline.com/elite-brice-mccain-texans-jersey/ . The Blue Jays begin a seven-game road trip and will face the New York Yankees after their three-game set with Baltimore.  The Jays dropped two of three at home to the Yanks this past weekend. MARRAKECH, Morocco -- Francesca Schiavone beat South African Chanelle Scheepers 7-6 (4), 6-1 to set up a Grand Prix SAR final against Lourdes Dominguez Lino, who overcame a slow start to beat Luxembourgs Mandy Minella 2-6, 6-0, 6-1 on Saturday. Schiavone broke Scheepers serve three times in the second set, where the sixth-seeded Italian saved two break points on her own serve. Schiavone, the 2010 French Open champion now ranked 48th, is through to her first final of the year and goes for her sixth title and first since winning the Strasbourg Open in May last year. "Its been a long time since Ive been to a final, so Im really happy," said Schiavone, who has not dropped a set this week. "Its good to get this far again. I have one more step to go, so I want to take advantage of this chance and leave everything on the court."; She leads Dominguez Lino 3-1 in head-to-head meetings.dddddddddddd The 32-year-old veterans first played each other 15 years ago on clay at Spoleto in Italy, where the Spaniard beat Schiavone for the only time. Dominguez Lino, who secured three consecutive breaks in the deciding set, goes for her third title and her first since winning at Bogota, Colombia in February 2011, when she also beat Minella on her way to the title. Minella broke Dominguez Linos serve three times in the first set, but the Spaniard saved six break points and broke Minellas serve three times in the second set. "It was a tough match because she started off playing well and I was a little bit tired from yesterday," Dominguez Lino said. "But I think mentally I was stronger in the end, and that was the difference. Im so happy I won." ' ' '

 According to Vacheron Constantin, the inspiration for its Métiers d’Art Mecaniques Ajourées collection (“ajourée” is French for “openworked”) came from the Rolex Replica Watch architectural design of 19th century European railroad stations — the Gothic arches and airy vaults of the Industrial Revolution, along with the distinctive railway wall clocks and their Roman numerals. The Rolex Replica movement in these watches, Caliber 4400 SQ (“squellette”) is described by the company as “hand-sculpted,” featuring manual beveling, engraving, and straightening, fine interior angles and contrasting brushed and polished finishes. The Replicas rolex outer rings (in black, gray, or blue; there is also a high-jewelry version with baguette diamonds on the bezel) are made of grand feu enamel. The white gold cases are 40 mm in diameter, and the movement bears the Geneva Hallmark.
